A Colorful Day

Hey ya’ll! This next layout was inspired by Let’s Get Sketchy’s newest sketch and ACOT’s MMC #3 challenge – stamping, but with a twist. We had to create our background by stamping with something unusual. I actually tried this a few times on scrap paper and never liked anything I came up with until I went into the kitchen to grab a bottle of water, when I saw it. Sitting on the counter. Next to the wine rack. A wine cork! I tried it and really liked the results!

A colorful Day

And here is the sketch:

LGS Week 4 July

I loved the 2 photo sketch, and the ric rac was perfect! The ink, ribbon, bling are all from CTMH with the chipboard pieces from MAMBI. The turquoise paper and paper clip are from The Paper Studio while the pink paper and alphas are Basic Grey. And yes, I finally used that lonely teal flower from my original July Use It or Lose It Challenge! Better late than never right?!!

TFL! 🙂

Treasure This

My pups are always doing silly things, and I try my best to capture those moments. This next layout features Ruby Mae being goofy with a blanket last year.

I used Teresa Collins “You’re My Happy” collection, along with 2 different Tattered Angels mists, using the packaging technique for my background.

The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Week 2, May sketch:


I stayed true to the sketch, adding the corner piece to give it some interest. Really love how this turned out!

I chose Teresa Collins for the May Manufacturer Challenge at ACOT – to use the letter “T” and for bonus, do mixed media. You knew I had to do the bonus right!?!?! 😉

Layout: Summer —> This Way!

When Let’s Get Sketchy posted their June Sketch – Week 1, I KNEW I had to use it almost immediately. It inspired me to scrap some of these doggies pics.

Summer, this way

The pictures are of my aunt’s dog, Booger, and Rascal. Booger is the little Jack Russel and he jumped in the small wading pool while she filled it up for the kids. Rascal is the larger dog, who just wanted to get a drink of water.

Here’s the amazing sketch:

june week 1 lGS

All papers and stickers are Simple Stories. The camera paper clip is by Prima, and the cork arrows are from Fancy Pants. The ribbon and sequins are from my stash.

TFL! 🙂
